WHAT IS FORREST YOGA?
Forrest Yoga was created by and named after an inspirational yogi called Ana Forrest. It is an inspiring, grounding and healing yoga practice that through intelligent sequencing builds flexibility, strength and integrity. The practice is intensely physical and internally focused, guided by the use of breath and core exercises, working to release tension and encourage a deeper connection with the physical and emotional body. Forrest Yoga is for everyBODY and offers effective modifications for those working with injuries.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The benefits are endless. The practice recognises that people’s bodies are just not the same as they once were and every aspect of the practice has the purpose of moving us 21st century folk out of pain, whether emotional or physical, as they are one in the same.
With regular practice, your body and your mind will get stronger, layers of tension that have resided around your neck, shoulders and the rest of your body will dissipate. Your perspective on life may also alter. When we learn the tools to help draw our attention inwards, I believe that anything is possible.
DO I HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE?
The short answer is NO. We all have different bodies and yoga is not about learning to put your feet behind your ears. The fact is you don't have to have the hamstrings of a gymnast to benefit from yoga. I will help you find your place in every pose.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
All you need to bring is a yoga mat and yourself. I advise wearing comfortable and light clothing. The room is not heated however I suggest bringing a small towel and a bottle of water to ensure you remain well hydrated.
